The Atlanta Hawks and Denver Nuggets meet Saturday in NBA action at the Ball Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Hawks vs Nuggets prediction.

Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks have been in pretty good shape as they’ve won six of their last eight games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting trampled by the Mavericks in a 109-95 road defeat on Thursday. Bogdan Bogdanovic led the team with 17 points, Dejounte Murray added 16 points with five rebounds and four assists while Garrison Matthews chipped in with 14 points on five of six shooting off the bench. As a team, the Hawks shot just 40 percent from the field and 13 of 38 from the 3-point line as they fell behind going into halftime thanks to 40 allowed points in the second quarter, and things didn’t get much better in the fourth quarter where the Hawks managed just 14 points to get blown out in the end.

Denver Nuggets

Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets have been in great form as they’ve won 11 of their last 15 games overall, but they are looking for a better result in this one after coming up painfully short to the Clippers in a 102-100 road defeat on Thursday. Nikola Jokic led the team with a triple-double of 36 points with 17 rebounds and 10 assists on 14 of 24 shooting, Aaron Gordon added 18 points with seven assists while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Nuggets shot 43 percent from the field and 11 of 35 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in full control when they shot out to an early 17-point lead, but they allowed the Clippers to hang around and it cost them as they wasted their last three possessions of the game to fall just short in a close contest.

Denver Nuggets Team Facts

  • The Nuggets have won each of their last 14 home games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Nuggets have covered the spread in each of their last six games against Southeast Division opponents following a loss.
  • Eight of the last nine games between the Hawks and Nuggets have gone OVER the total points line.

Atlanta Hawks Team Facts

  • The Hawks have lost seven of their last eight road games against Northwest Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Hawks have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight road games against Northwest Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • Eight of the Hawks’ last 10 games have gone OVER the total points line.

Hawks vs Nuggets prediction

The Hawks are still missing a few players including Trae Young, Saddiq Bey and Onyeka Okongwu, while the Nuggets are likely missing Jamal Murray once again. The Hawks come into this meeting in surprisingly good form, especially considering the injuries they’ve had to deal with, but the Nuggets are levels above the Hawks, and they are still big favorites despite their recent loss to the Clippers. The Nuggets beat the Hawks by 129-122 back on Dec. 11 and with this game being played at the Ball Arena, I can only see the Nuggets winning by a bigger margin.
